There are an estimated 20 billion
networked devices in the world today,
everything from cell phones to sensors
in supply chains, he said. By 2020, that
total number of networked devices
should grow to 40 billion. Not all will
be new devices, but one can expect
that industries like mining, transportation and agriculture will be turned
inside out, he said.
That said, most of those 20 billion
devices are still generating dumb data.
"We are not yet producing Pacific
Oceans of intelligence," Ross said.

Data transformation
What will the future bring? Forget bilingual dictionaries for travel. In five years,
if you are overseas and someone speaks
to you in a foreign language, you will
turn on a microphone on your cell phone
and hear a voice that will speak to you in
English via simultaneous translation.

Forty-five years ago, there were 300
million native English-speakers in the
world and 200 million more people
who had learned English, Ross said.
Today, there are 400 million native
English-speakers, but 800 million more
non-native English speakers. English has become the global platform
for business.
What about driverless cars? Ross was
skeptical at first. Indeed, he informed
Google's founders, with whom he
has connections, that he was going to
"short their stock" because he could
never see how the
company's investment
in driverless cars
would ever work. In
response, they invited
him to the Googleplex, Google's corporate headquarters, to
experience driverless
travel first-hand.

He hopped in the back seat of a driverless car, he recalled, strapped on a seat
belt, and the vehicle moved slowly
about the Google corporate parking lot.
The driverless vehicle pulled out of the
parking lot, accelerated up an on-ramp
to U.S. Highway
101, reached the
posted speed and
began changing
lanes. Ross was
thinking, "Someone is going to
die. I'm freaking
out," he said.
